    Plan to grow outside but as of now they are in the garage under lights (lack of sun). Went out to check and was surprised to see what looks like small red pinpoint of a critter crawling around on the leaves. Didn't think I would have a mite ? problem this far north (up on the border). There are what appears to be a few knats flying near the sprouts under the lights. Is there something that can be sprayed that will help my sprouts, thinking something like a soap mixture or garlic mixture or ????. Am a long way from a nursery or store and need help now.....
     
  2. sprinkle garlic powder on the soil for the fungus gnats, you can also add 2 inches of sand to the top of the soil to prevent the adults returning to lay more eggs

    you need to get neem oil for the mites ASAP order on the internet get 75% pure and add 2 tablespoons per gallon of water plus 2 drops of dish soap and spray the plants well especially the undersides of the leaves.....this MUST be done every 3 days for 2 weeks

    till the neem oil arrives boil 3 cigarettes in a quart of water to make dark tea, strain and spray as described above

    also add 2 table spoons of neem oil to 1 gallon of water and use this to water your plants till its gone ....this will kill the fungus gnat larvae eating your roots
